Message from Allies:
Hi Nando!
Halseys Typhoon prevents 7th Armored Bde move to Dacca, see 5.32 D. Weather:
...
The cancelation of the Offensive also prevents any event bonuses or reinforcement units from entering play.
The cancelled Offensive card is considered discarded, not played, so it is placed the discard pile and not removed from play even if its event calls for removal from play.

I think they stay in Great Britain or South Africa...
